Wilson’s New Civil War Trails Marker

The top right picture on the marker was what the Hospital looked like during the Civil War era.

Yesterday I was able to attend the unveiling of Wilson’s new Civil War Trails Marker for the Wilson Confederate Military Hospital No.2 Museum (see earlier post).  There I met the mayor of Wilson, the NC tourism director and John Hackney, the WWII P-51 pilot I posted a picture of recently. The marker looks great but the museum still needs a lot of work.  However, it was very interesting to walk inside of the building and see the restoration in progress.
